We especially worry about baby Roo. It is not his impulsivity or hyperactivity that concerns us, as we feel that those are probably age appropriate. We worry about the environment in which he is developing. Roo is growing up in a single-parent household, which puts him at high risk for Poorer Outcome. We predict we will someday see a delinquent, jaded, adolescent Roo hanging out late at night at the top of the forest, the ground littered with broken bottles of extract of malt and the butts of smoked thistles. We think that this will be Roo's reality, in part because of a second issue. Roo's closest friend is Tigger, who is not a good Role Model. Peer influences strongly affect outcome.

... "Oh bother." Said Pooh as he chambered another round.

Wish I could find the story that's from now. It amused me greatly.

I first saw that on the USENET group alt.sysadmin.recovey. I have no idea where it came from. A Google search shows about 91,00 hits, far too many to wade through by hand. So I'm afraid I can shed no light.

In the meantime, however, enjoy Pooh Goes Apeshit. ;]
